Red Roses break new record

The Red Roses won their third game of this year’s Six Nations with an overwhelming victory over Wales on Saturday. The ladies won 58-5 at Kingsholm in their most impressive performance of the campaign so far.

An unfortunate incident however caused speedy winger Abby Dow to be stretchered off the field during the early stages with a broken leg. England Rugby has since released a statement that reads:

“She is comfortable in hospital and will undergo surgery.

“Everyone at England Rugby sends their best wishes to Abby and wishes her a full and speedy recovery.

“On behalf of Abby, we’d like to thank England supporters and the wider rugby family for the messages of support we have received following Saturday’s match.”

This victory takes them level on points with the in-form French side, who also boast three winning bonus points in as many games. The two sides are due to line up against each other at the end of the month in what could very well be the championship decider.

The Red Roses also took another step forward in International Rugby with a record breaking 14,864 fans attending Saturday’s game. This was the highest ever turnout at a standalone home match for the England Women’s team.

The women’s game has taken a massive step forward over the past few years with increased television coverage to bring in more revenue for the game. This has helped increase the participation across the grassroots game up and down the country.

World Rugby’s ambition for the Women’s game states:

‘By 2025, rugby will be a global leader in sport, where women involved in rugby have equity on and off the field, are reflected in all strategy, plans and structures, making highly valued contributions to participation, performance, leadership and investment in the global game of rugby.’

With the World Cup set to take place between the 8th October 2022 – 12th November 2022, one would certainly expect the interest in the game to continue to rise.
